Small, sturdy, powerful, and (best of all) sweat proof, these tiny wireless workout headphones are changing our game in the gym. In addition to playing music, podcasts, and whatever, they have a built-in movement sensor that offers workout feedback. From exercise, phone calls or just everyday wear, the 65T earbuds are form-fitted to snugly hold their place comfortably in our ears.

The 5-hour battery life is already impressive. But mix in the wireless charging case and we get 15 hours of uninterrupted playback. They boast a 33-foot range, so we can move around the gym without being tied down to our device. And, with improved and enhanced 3rd generation Jabra wireless stability, we stay connected regardless of weather, traffic, whatever.

Voice command is received with four microphones, so once connected we get one-touch access to Siri, Alexa, Google, and whoever else we want to call on for assistance. And there’s a two-year warranty against dirt and sweat damage.

Sure, you could get him yet another tie or plunk down big bucks for some tech gadget that he may or may not use. But why take the chance? Get him something you know he’ll use—and love. His workouts will never be the same.
